Hi Xtian,

there is a good reason for the current default: you can use the history file in order
reconstruct a particular workspace state (provided that the history length is sufficiently

If you don't want SVN updates or new installs to override your settings in
/etc/gnu-apl.d/preference then you can create a personal file
in ~/.config/gnu-apl/preferences which will not be touched by
new installs and is read after the other file (causing its setting to succeed).

This setting work pretty well.

I would suggest that it be the default for brand new installation (future ones)

thanks for the trick,

    History (up arrow/down arrow) while editing with Del editor.

    I love the "up arrow" who recall last commands.

    but when I edit a Del function[quad]

    I also love the fact that I can edit/rewrite every lines in that function by doing up-arrow/down-arrow and typing over.

    but when I save the function with the final DEL,
    the history still remember the last 92 (in fact all) lines of the original function editing session,
    so, if I want to recall the line just before editing, I have to do 92+ up-arrow to get there ..

    I would love that in the Del editor, thoses (92) lines are not realy saved into the apl history. Completely useless.

    my whish,
